Printer install problem & upgrade application?
Also, I got the message "CUPS Service Stopped The CUPS printer spooler does not appear to be running. To correct choose system>Administratiin>Services from the main menu and look for CUPS service. . System is there, but there is no entry for Administration. Nothing anywhere indicating "CUPS service". Where did it disappear to?
I was also looking for the package tool, and none is listed anywhere. Is all this done from the command line in 13.1? I was using 12.0,. and it had a package tool entry on the menu. There is no package tool listed on any part of the menu. I really loved 12.0 because everything worked without a hitch. This 13.1 is one problem after another.
Should I do a re-install? Something is wrong here, and I don't think it's all my ignorance.
Any help would be appreciated.
I decided to do a clean install of a 13.0 DVD I have on hand. It installed and is working flawlessly. What the problem was with 13.1, I don't know. But, I have Slackware up and running and that's all I care about.

It's a parallel port printer, and when I get to the choices, the parallel port option is grayed-out. Why is it grayed-out and how do I make it available?

However, I like having the latest and greatest, so give this a try. Post the output of the following commands and we'll see what we can do:
ls -lah /etc/rc.d/
